W7 Absolute Lashes* vs. Benefit They're Real Mascara

3 February 2015
Mascara is an essential in any girls makeup collection regardless of what their makeup style is. I've tried hundreds of them over the years, from the cheaper brands like Collection and the more high-end brands such as Benefit. As much as I like my high-end products it's always nice to find a cheaper alternative that actually works... Like my Nan says 'it's only a bargain if it's actually worth having'.


W7's Absolute Lashes is very much a dupe for Benefit's They're Real mascara, so I was very excited to try it out for myself. The similarities between the two are just crazy, I often grab the Absolute Lashes mascara by mistake thinking it's actually the They're Real mascara as their packaging is so alike!

I must say that W7's Absolute Lashes mascara has really surprised me! I wasn't expecting it to lift and lengthen my lashes as much as Benefit does, but I'm definitely not complaining at the price. Both mascaras have the same shaped wands so you can reach those little lashes that bigger wands may often miss out.

The only difference between the two mascaras is Absolute Lashes has a thicker formula making your eyelashes appear fuller than They're Real does but that's what I like about it! I often used another mascara on top of Benefits to achieve the thickness I desire, so I'm finding myself reaching out for W7's Absolute Lashes more and more instead of Benefit's They're Real.

Will you be giving this mascara a go? For just £3.45 on Amazon here at the moment you'd be silly to miss out on such a good dupe!

*PR gifted product.

  2. I have the They're Real mascara and I think it's great for length. The W7 mascara just looks amazing and it's the perfect dupe. I actually think it looks better than the benefit mascara! x

  9. I love They're Real but it's just so expensive to use as an every day mascara! I can't believe how similar (product and packaging wise - naughty W7! haha) the two are, I don't think I can say no to trying it out at such a great price!

  10. Wow, I didn't know about this brand! They definitely made the mascara as a dupe for the They're Real, and it's amazing that the result is also similar! I even think I prefer the look of your lashes with the Absolute Lashes than with the Benefit mascara. It just makes me want to try it out!

  14. The results are so similar! I think I will be picking this up. I love Benefit products but sometimes I just can't justify the price tag. The W7 one is soooo much cheaper! x

  20. I think it's so funny how brands will copy high end palettes and products to the point that they're almost identical! This was definitely informative, I've never heard of that dupe before!

  21. I wish it didn't make lashes so clumpy though! They're Real will always be my go-to :)

  26. I go throw mascara like crazy! It's so hard to find a good one. I have been thinking about getting the Benefit They're Real but I actually think the Absolute Lashes looks better in your pictures.
    I'm going to try the Absolute Lashes instead, and its less money!

  27. Wow, I'd never heard of Absolute Lashes until now but I constantly use They're Real - looking at your images, I prefer the way Absolute Lashes looks! At that price I think I'll have to try it ;)

  28. I've wanted to try Benefit's They're Real forever but always hesitated because of the price tag. I'm definitely going to give w7's mascara a go, it looks amazing for the price! Thanks for comparing them :) x

  32. I've been searching for a new mascara to try for ages which is good and isn't too pricey. I'm a fan of the Benefit They're Real! mascara but the price of it always makes me sway, so for it to now come to light that there's a dupe which is practically the same yet cheaper has genuinely made my day and sold me ha ha. Great blog btw! LL. X
